"I take a stand and don't let people push my clients around. I work harder, smarter and better so that I can get the best results in your case."

The Frye Law Group understands that being accused of any crime is a very serious matter. If you face criminal prosecution, the experience is very stressful and potentially life-altering. Adding to the stress of criminal prosecution is the fact that the criminal process can be both confusing and intimidating. "The entire process can last months. It's important you have a lawyer beside you that you can trust."

"I take a stand and don't let people push my clients around. I work harder, smarter and better so that I can get the best results in your case."

Kim Keheley Frye works aggressively on behalf of the criminally accused. She is a compassionate listener who empathizes with the grief, anger, and fear clients often experience when faced with a criminal charge. Kim is passionate about turning these emotional responses into a successful criminal defense founded upon her unflagging advocacy and negotiation on behalf of her clients. Kim Keheley Frye is equipped for criminal defense in part because of her past experience as a prosecutor.

"I know how the state thinks," she says. "I know how they work their cases. That experience is invaluable to me." When asked why she made the switch to defense, she states, "I enjoy so much more being able to bring justice for people."

Founding principle of the Frye Law Group, Kim Keheley Frye recognizes that police reports often merely capture an officer's fleeting impression. She explains, "A police officer's job is to make a case. I take seriously our responsibility to not only provide excellent legal representation to my clients, but to help them understand the legal process that can so profoundly affect their lives." Accordingly, Kim tailors the unique concerns and desired outcomes in every defense strategy.

With over 100 specialized hours of training every year, Kim has the edge on most Marietta and Cobb County criminal defense attorneys.

"That extra training might be the make or break it for that one client. And it's worth it if it helps bring them freedom."
